Tony Rosato Biography

Tony Rosato is one of the most popular and richest Voice Actor who was born on December 26, 1954 in Italy, Italy. Canadian-Italian actor best known for his voice acting on numerous animated television series including Hello Kitty and Friends, The Neverending Story, and Elliott Moose.

He played the role of Arthur “Whitey” Morelli opposite Jeff Wincott on the television drama Night Heat from 1985 to 1989.

Rosato first gained attention when he and Robin Duke joined the cast of the first incarnation of SCTV in its final season during the fall of 1980. His most well-known character on the program was the notoriously drunk TV chef Marcello Sebastiani. Rosato then moved with Duke to the cast of Saturday Night Live for the 1981–82 season. Following Jean Doumanian’s tenure during the sixth season and Dick Ebersol trying to retool the show (and relying on Eddie Murphy and Joe Piscopo to spice up the sketches), Rosato only appeared on the show for one year before leaving due to differences with Ebersol and an expired contract.

In 1983, he starred as Aldo, the busboy in the short-lived Bea Arthur series, Amanda’s. The show was based on Fawlty Towers but was not well-received by audiences and was cancelled after 10 episodes.

He had a daughter in 2005 from his marriage with his wife Leah.

Rosato married Leah Murray on December 31, 2003; together they have a daughter. After seven years together, Rosato and Murray’s marriage ended in a divorce in 2010.

On May 5, 2005, Rosato was arrested and charged with criminal harassment of his wife Leah, who asserted that his deteriorating mental health had caused her to fear for her safety and that of the couple’s infant daughter. The charge was laid after Rosato complained repeatedly to Toronto and Kingston police that his wife, who had recently left him, and daughter had been abducted and replaced by impostors, a belief characteristic of Capgras delusion, a delusional misidentification syndrome with which the Crown’s expert psychiatrist had diagnosed Rosato, according to Rosato’s lawyer, Daniel Brodsky. It was alleged that the harassment occurred from December 28, 2003 and escalated until April 21, 2005. In spite of the diagnosis, Rosato, who denied mental illness and refused to plead insanity, was held for over two years without bail at a maximum-security detention centre. Brodsky, who called his client’s two-year detention awaiting trial “shocking,” asserted that Rosato “spent more time in custody on a harassment charge” than anyone ever convicted of the offence in Canada, estimating that “on average, someone convicted of criminal harassment spends one day in jail and two years on probation.” The trial finally commenced on August 7, 2007, in Kingston and it ended on September 5. Prosecutors downgraded the charge to a summary offence from an indictable offence, handing Rosato a conditional discharge, including a psychiatric hospital residence order, of which he ended up serving 19 months of a maximum of three years. Rosato was released from the hospital in March 2009 but remained on probation until September 2010.
